What Happens Next?
Destination & Resort Research
So to kick things off in the travel planning process, the first step is destination and resort research. I will use the information that we discussed in our initial consultation to curate the best options for your vacation. We will review the options and narrow them down to the perfect option for you.
Gathering a Little More Information
While I am doing what I do best, you can access your client portal which will have a signed copy of your contract and invoice for your records. Also complete our Client Booking Information Form as this will make it convenient to secure vacation packages and provide additional time to finalize and make deposit if needed.
Once I have completed the initial round of research and have curated a selection of destination and resort options, I will provide a detailed review of each option. You have the choice of having your vacation package reviewed live or via a convenient video recording that will allow you to review it at your leisure
